Mozilla 1.2 Alpha Released

Wednesday September 11th, 2002

Mozilla 1.2 Alpha is here! This latest release adds an Emacs-style Type Ahead Find feature (not currently available on Mac OS), the ability to add multiple attachments to an email or newsgroup message via the Attach File dialogue (Windows only) and enhanced keyboard accessibility. There's also stability and performance improvements, including a fix that dramatically speeds up IMAP mail header downloads on Mac OS X. Check out the Release Notes for more details and a list of known issues. As usual, builds are available from mozilla.org's web site or FTP server.

Looking further ahead, 1.2 Beta should be released next month with the final version of Mozilla 1.2 expected in November. If you still don't understand how all the different releases fit together, take another look at the Roadmap.

Well, although it's alpha-software, it feels rock-solid. It did not crash yet although I installed some additional stuff from MozDev. It feels quite stable (I have also Netscape 7.0 and Mozilla 1.0.1 installed, but already prefer Mozilla 1.2a) and has these additional features like the type-ahead-thingy. It's just something I would not have expected to find in a webbrowser. But now it's included I think I am going to use it. Pretty cool to use some vi-skills in your webbrowser on a Windows-system surfing through a Microsoft-proxy (which is bypassed with a Python-script running on a Linux-system) ;-)
